Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was placed on a backboard and taken to a hospital for further evaluation after suffering a head injury in Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Bridgewater scrambled for a 6-yard gain on a second-and-5 play in the third quarter, but his head appeared to slam against the ground after he went airborne for the first down while Bengals linebacker Joe Bachie tried to make the tackle. Bridgewater remained motionless on the field for a stretch before being attended to.

Medical personnel removed the eighth-year veteran’s facemask and loaded him onto a backboard before taking him off on a cart. Broncos players as well as several members of the Bengals encircled Bridgewater, and fans in Denver chanted, “Teddy, Teddy.”

The Broncos confirmed that Bridgewater had movement in his extremities but said he was being taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Backup Drew Lock replaced Bridgewater in the game.

Bridgewater completed 12 of 22 passes for 98 yards before the injury.
